“Central Hotel with mod cons”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

This hotel is perfectly located across from the train station so very convenient if you are traveling Italy by train. The staff were friendly and spoke perfect English. Our room was a little small, particularly the shower, but had all the necessities and a comfy bed.

I don't know if many tourists stop in Genoa but it is a good spot for a day trip to Portafino and is on the direct train line to Milan. Not as pretty as some Italian spots but wharf is interesting and the town has great seafood. Prices are cheaper than some spots in Italy.

This hotel is nicely located to see the sights of Genoa.

This is a very comfortable, friendly and excellent value hotel in an ideal location directly opposite the main railway station (Principe) in Genoa - also buses for the airport stop just across the road. This is a character property which has been recently restored: the lift from reception is still the original old-fashioned design. Our room was immaculate, spotlessly clean, & well furnished with a very comfy bed and swish flat-screen TV with numerous channels. The staff were all very helpful, and we had a delicious meal in the adjacent Trattoria where they also served a tasty and abundant buffet breakfast. There is a computer in reception for guest use and wi-fi as well. We were in transit so were only able to stay the one night, but we would definitely return for a longer stay in order to explore this vibrant city further. The Hotel Continental would also make a very good base for visiting other places along this coast easily reachable by train, such as the beautiful Cinque Terre region to the east, and the 'Riviera dei Fiori' to the west.

Room Tip: We had a beautiful sunny corner room on the 2nd floor overlooking the leafy square - there was some...

My husband and I stayed here three nights. Very convenient to train station and central to anywhere you want to walk. The hotel staff are pleasant and very welcoming and helpful. Breakfasts are great so If you go hungry it is your own fault! This is the first hotel I was given a full pot of coffee for breakfast, a treat for me as I'm not a fan of espresso. If we visit this lovely city again we would certainly go "Continental".

Just over the road from the train station and close to all the sights. Value for money hotel to explore the city and surrounds. Genoa is an interesting place. We found the lifts to the upper areas overlooking the city. The lifts are located inside the cliff faces. Hard to describe but worth looking for. There is one near the hotel.

When I booked this hotel I didn't know what to think. After I arrived I was most happy that I did book this hotel.

The hotel is directly opposite the entrance Piazza Principe Railway Station which is very handy if you are travelling by train. With Genoa being quite compact it is not to far to walk to most of the sights of Genoa.

The room was well set out in an art nouveau style, the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was well priced and there was ample choices to suit everybody. I ate at the trattoria that is attached to the hotel, this was excellent and I ate there again the following evening.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is visiting Genoa.

My husband and I stayed 6 nights at this hotel and used it as a base for exploring Genoa, the Cinque Terra and the rest of the Ligurian Coast. It was in an ideal location just minutes walk from the main Piazza Principe railway station. It was also very close to Stazione Marittima where the cruise liners leave from. When we arrived we were upgraded to a larger room on the 4th floor which was located at the back of the hotel and was very quiet both night and day. We were also given for free a voucher worth 30 Euro for a city bus tour which another guest was unable to use. The room was very clean and well appointed. All the reception staff were very helpful, friendly and polite. The breakfasts were exceptional with a large variety of fruits, cereals, breads, pastries, meats, cheeses, eggs, salads, etc. and served in the trattoria next door. The trattoria called Tralalero was one of our best discoveries in Genoa, it served beautifully cooked regional food and we had a wonderful set course meal of 4 courses with bottle of wine, bottle of mineral water and coffee for 35 Euros each and it was so good that we ended up having dinner there on another three nights but with smaller meals on those occasions. It was easy to walk from the hotel to the main sights in Genoa. The hotel was good value and we would definitely stay there again if we're in Genoa.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are very quiet.

Outstanding location opposite Piazza del Principe Rail Station we enjoyed corner generous sized sunny room on 5th Floor with very good quality facilities and with no road noise distractions. Friendly service staff and generous breakfasts made this an enjoyable experience marred only by malfunctioning electronically controlled window shutters occurring on 2nd night after 11pm service cut-off. The old fashioned manual lift provided a quirky 'hit and miss' option if other patrons forgot to close the cage doors properly. Happy to return to this Hotel and would certainly recommend, especially for upper floors rooms.

Room Tip: Choose an upper floor room for best experience.
